From 1 January 2012 I have withdrawn all interest from the part time Finance Director market.
It's been many years since I provided the services myself but until a few days ago I was promoting the service for a few experienced accountants throughout the UK.
That has ended based on feedback from people that it is confusing people on my own core offer of strategic coaching and consultancy which combines finance, marketing and strategy.
For more details please see my new website:
If you are thinking about hiring a part time finance director because you need to have more focus on finance, profit and cash flow, then my own view is that you'll get a better deal from approaching independents rather than one of the networks/franchises although you will have to do more due diligence yourself on qualifications and experience.
